Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Bayreuth, language: English, abstract: For a long time, the genre of fantasy has not been regarded as ‘real’ literature, because it apparently did not deal with problems from the real world and was often published in cheap paperbacks or journals. Furthermore, because its story did not take place in the real world, it was deemed to be unimportant and inconsequential. This was the reason why writers of fantastic stories could not until the middle of the twentieth century openly write about strange worlds which were so much different from ours. They had to disguise their stories as wondrous travel stories or accounts of strange dreams. However, things changed. J. R. R. Tolkien's novels became an immediate success and prepared the readers for all those other fantasy writers who followed. This is one of the reasons why he is considered to be the father of modern fantasy. Among the fantasy genre, there are various sub-genres. I will focus on the Dragonlance series by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, which is a mixture of Epic Fantasy and Sword & Sorcery. The next work, the trilogy His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, is Children’s Fantasy, with the main protagonists being adolescents. Lastly, I will single out an aspect from the science fiction series Star Wars by George Lucas, which is his concept of the Force. The genres of science fiction and fantasy are closely related, because the first depicts a fictional future or a fictional future civilisation in a different universe, and the latter often depicts fictional stories that, were it not for their fantastic elements, could well have taken place somewhere in the past. Therefore, it is not too astonishing that elements of science fiction stories could just as well exist in fantasy literature. The religious concepts which I will analyse in this thesis are taken from various culture groups. ‘Religious concepts’ is a term in which I include, for one, concepts and ideas that deal with rituals or beliefs in connection with any kind of higher beings. It also includes ideas or philosophies which require some kind of ‘believing’. Also, single aspects of religions like the idea of dualism from the gnostics or the concept of balance, which can be found for example in Buddhism, belong to the definition of ‘religious concepts’ in this thesis as well as various religious teachings. Additionally, I will take the various movies related to the three stories into consideration, because they provide further information and facts for interpretation.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Fantasy is often condemned as escapist, unsophisticated and superficial. This collection of new essays puts such easy dismissals to the test by examining the ways in which Fantasy narratives present diverse, politically relevant discourses--gender, race, religion or consumerism--and thereby serve as indicators of their real-world contexts. Through their depiction of other worlds allegedly disconnected from our own, these texts are able to actualize political attitudes. Instead of categorizing Fantasy either as conservative or progressive, the essays suggest that its generic peculiarity allows the emergence of productive forms of oscillation between these extremes. Covered are J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire sequence, J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels, the vampire TV series True Blood, and the dystopian computer game Fallout 3.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Fantasy literature inhabits the realms of the orthodox and heterodox, the divine and demonic simultaneously, making it uniquely positioned to imaginatively re-envision Christian theology from a position of difference. Having an affinity for the monstrous and the 'other', and a preoccupation with desires and forms of embodiment that subvert dominant understandings of reality, fantasy texts hold hitherto unexplored potential for articulating queer and feminist religious perspectives. Focusing primarily on fantastic literature of the mid- to late twentieth century, this book examines how Christian theology in the genre is dismantled, re-imagined and transformed from the margins of gender and sexuality. Aligning fantasy with Derrida's theories of deconstruction, Taylor Driggers explores how the genre can re-figure God as the 'other' excluded and erased from theology. Through careful readings of C.S. Lewis's Till We Have Faces, Angela Carter's The Passion of New Eve, and Ursula K. Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness and the Earthsea novels, Driggers contends that fantasy can challenge cis-normative, heterosexual, and patriarchal theology. Also engaging with the theories of Hélène Cixous, Luce Irigaray, Marcella Althaus-Reid, and Linn Marie Tonstad, this book demonstrates that whilst fantasy cannot save Christianity from itself, nor rehabilitate it for marginalised subjects, it confronts theology with its silenced others in a way that bypasses institutional debates on inclusion and leadership, asking how theology might be imagined otherwise.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Miscellaneous, grade: 2,0, Free University of Berlin (JFK), course: "Framing Reality":The Hollywood Representation of Broadcast News Journalism., language: English, abstract: “It was pretty much the blond girl in the alley in the horror movie who keeps getting killed ... I felt bad for her, but she was always much more interesting to me than the other women. She was fun, she had sex, she was vivacious. But then she would get punished for it. Literally, I just had that image, that scene, in my mind, like the trailer for a movie what if the girl goes into that dark alley. And the monster follows her. And she destroys him.” This quote taken from Joss Whedon, creator and executive producer of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003), shows his interest in establishing an absolutely new type of show where a heroine – an apparently average high-school girl – is the focus of the storyline. Nineteen-year old Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) personifies the Chosen One to save the world from dreadful demons, nasty vampires and other scary supernatural creatures. How Buffy copes with her duty as a Slayer, how she manages to overcome the separations from her two former boy-friends Angel and Riley and how she deals with her capricious teenage sister Dawn – all that can be learned during seasons one through five of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This paper, however, focuses on an extraordinary episode in mid-season V called The Body, where we are confronted with an utterly vulnerable protagonist facing death and attempting to come to terms with the result of her mother’s passing away. This paper’s intention is to show how and why Joss Whedon decided to make Buffy‘s mother Joyce die on screen and to explore its significance for the story’s plot. My assumption is that this crucial impact was indispensable for the development of Buffy’s character as well as for her relationship with her younger sister Dawn. As Buffy’s father having deserted the familiy after his divorce from Joyce and taking off to live in Italy, it is Buffy’s duty to take care of her sister and assume full responsibility for her after their mother’s sudden death. That process of maturity leads gradually to the very end of season V where in the final episode The Gift Buffy sacrifices her own life in order to spare Dawn’s.
